    Hosting a website What to use ? HostGador, Godaddy.....

    Im making a website for my small landscaping business using bootstrap and the website would allow the user to see the work that i have done and send emails to me. I currently have a gmail set up where my customers email me to. My question is when i create the email form using php and when i host the website would that be taken care of already or is there a certain company that does php ??

    Any Linux/Unix host will do PHP...at least the good ones. HostGator and GoDaddy are two you should avoid, although for entirely different reasons. HostGator is an EIG host, which means they'd have to improve tenfold just to suck; and GoDaddy is a good registrar but a horrible host.

    Here's an explanation of EIG hosts and why they should be avoided, along with a list of the EIG hosts (Wikipedia used to have a list, but for some reason they pulled it):

    Top web hosting review sites. What's wrong with them
    As Full As Possible List of EIG Companies and Brands With Details (Beware EIG Hosting!) <-- this is something you'll want to bookmark. It's the alpha list of hosts to avoid.

    If you set up your site on something such as www.sectorlink.com, you'll be fine. You may need to make some modifications to your script so that it authenticates to a mail server first, but you should be good to go other than that.
